Tractor Supply hosting FFA fundraiser

The Odessa-area Tractor Supply Company store will collect donations during National FFA Week to support grants for FFA chapters in Texas .
During National FFA Week, today through Feb. 26, Tractor Supply shoppers can donate $1 or more at checkout. Donations will fund the Grants for Growing Program, which supports Texas FFA chapters. The program is coordinated through a partnership with the National FFA Foundation and Tractor Supply.
Earlier this year, FFA chapters submitted applications detailing how they will start or expand a project that will benefit their communities and future FFA students. Funds have been requested to purchase vegetation, trees, seed, chickens, feed, mulch and tools, for projects ranging from greenhouses to aquaculture labs.
Winning FFA chapter initiatives will be awarded Grants for Growing in the spring. The minimum competitive grant amount is $500 for chapters. All in-store donations remain within the state in which they were raised.
